Ps3 not reading discs

Alrite so my 40gb ps3 wont read any discs after playing COD4. The discs do not even spin. Ive tried all the regular fixes (updates, resetting system, ect.) and I realize its the disc drive or blu ray laser. Where can I get replacement parts for this to fix myself?

If you have this problem it is because the laser has shifted from where it needs to be and the good news is that it is not that hard to fix all you need is a good repair guide.

You can of course send it in but the disc reading issue you should be able to fix in less than 1 hour from home.

The disc goes in but unable to read it.


the PS3 laser has two wavelegths at 405nm(bluelight) and 750nm (redlight). the highpower lower wavelength diode on your machine im afraid has failed. The bluray light reads bluray games and bluray dvd's. the lower power red light reads audio cds and regular dvds/dvdrs. you need to install a new laser ..only 100 i charge or 160 from sony (150+TAX+2 week wait+frustration from not playing COD4..lol)
Now if you have the newer model laser KES410ACA, then you have 2 SEPARATE light sources...these tend not to fail as often. it costs the same to fix
